Corn Free Spiced Apple Pancakes
It has been quite a busy season around here, but we must keep moving forward 🙂 We’ve been working on several collaborations right now, and this is one of them. We’ve teamed up with Hannah from Positively Pure Food. She has an AMAzing Instagram Profile, here’s the link. Like me, Hannah creates awesome allergy friendly recipes, so be sure to follow her for yummy ideas.
Together, we decided to come up with holiday CORN FREE pancakes. That’s right folks. Hold on to your seats. While most of you don’t have a corn allergy, those of you that do understand how difficult it can be to source safe ingredients and then get said ingredients to work together to form something just right. Both Hannah and I put in a lot of time and energy to deliver what we feel are delicious, enjoyable, and safe recipes. For all of my corn free friends out there, enjoy yourself. Indulge yourself.

Fun & Festive Quick Donuts
We teamed up with List at Mummymade.it. You can also see her on Instagram, she’s @mummymadeit. Before I jump into things, I have to say, it’s been quite fun connecting with her online. In fact, the internet is quite amazing like that. For years, it seems like we’ve been on our own little island, and now that we’re try to help people, we’re connecting with SO many people who are on the same mission. Here’s what really gets me about Lisa: the health factor. The things she makes without cane sugar will blow you away. So, we thought it would be fun to each share a donut, and cookie with you, with a holiday theme. This week, she has created gorgeous Gingerbread Donuts. I personally can’t wait to give the recipe a go!
On our side of the globe, we decided to do something totally unconventional. We’ve created quick pancake donuts. A while back, I was reading how people are using boxed mixes to make all sorts of things, including donuts. Well, there aren’t many allergy free mixes available on the market. However, Enjoy Life has recently release a whole line. When they first came out, I decided to pass since we have so many pancake recipes around here. I thought, why am I buying a box of something? Although, thinking back, I should have so the kids and The Papa could make them faster for themselves, lol.
However, when these went on sale, I grabbed a few to try. A while back we shared the muffin mix results with you. The kids loved them. So I thought, what if…
The best part about these is that they sat out for 2.5 days, and everyone snacked on them as they walk ed by. No one ever reported that they had gone stale or dry, which is a huge plus. Kid Two said they really do still taste like pancakes. Kid three says they taste like donuts. I’ll let you be the judge.

Fall Feature – Sweet Squash Pizza
Fall has really arrived. It was cold last night. Yup, summer is gone now. We were all huddled around the stove this morning… perhaps it’s really winter? Nonetheless, each Monday this month, we will be collaborating with @dana_aversa (Happy Herbivore) on Instagram. Each week, we will both bring you a spectacular way to approach the same dish. This week, it’s pizza!!
We’ve each decided to use squash on our pizzas. I think it’s safe to say that ours is sweet, while Dana’s is savory. She also has a great lentil crust recipe. If you can’t have yeast, be sure to read her methods.

Lemon Stars Cake
When I made the Paleo Stars, I knew there would be some people who would simply want cake, including The Papa, Kid Two, and Kid Four. I saw this idea in the Costco Connection Magazine. Their idea was based around buying a sheet cake at Costco… not in this house. So, I had to get to making something. This recipe that I came up with is a modification of a white cake I’ve been secretly working on. Just between us, it turns out I’ve invented the perfect corn free cornbread. How funny/sad is that? I keep trying to tell The Papa that it’s white cake, and he’s like, nope, this is the best cornbread I’ve ever tasted.
Kid Two was a huge help putting these stars together, so hats off to him!

For Nut Free: use a safe milk substitute.

Egg Nog Pancakes!
That’s right, you read correctly. Egg Nog Pancakes have landed at the table. Now, I must warn you, these are delicious, and the texture is just right. I also found that they taste great without any syrup. The syrup in all honesty made it taste a bit funny….
So, here are the instructions, and yummy pictures. To be honest, editing these pictures was very difficult. I sorta wanted to eat the screen. I call these “wannabe” egg nog pancakes as there is no actual egg nog involved, however, when you don’t have the luxury of drinking egg nog, you’ll take what you can get. Read More
